Longhorn Beetle Alert

Aloha,

We just want to make everyone aware of this new pest that's hitting the Puna area on the Big Island of Hawaii. Its been spotted in Kurtistown, Orchidland, Hawaiian Acres, Hawaiian Paradise Park and a single sighting in Pahoa. This beetle has the potential to greatly impact orchards and tree-related agro businesses on the island. Although there are hundred’s of species, this longhorn is called acalolepta aesthetica (Oliff) (Coleoptera;cerambycidae) and is originally from Australia.
